Q: With regard to using 1 or 2 pods/load, please provide specific info on what constitutes a "large" load in terms of volume, weight, etc. Otherwise, it's both subjective and varies by washer capacities.
A: This is an excellent question. Washing machines have different capacities that may affect load sizes. We recommend you first check the manual for your machine. In the meantime, when a washing machine drum is around half full, you have a medium or regular wash load. For a large load, the machine will be about three quarters of the way full and for an extra large load, fill the drum. But, be careful not to overload your machine, since clothes need to be able to move freely.

Q: Has Tide changed the formula for the free & gentle pods? They used to be a milky white color but now they are yellow. I'm afraid the new formula will cause me to break out.

Q: Will Tide clean skid marks in my shorts ? What if it's actual caca ?

Q: Why the change from the milky white to the unpleasant looking yellow?
A: Thank you for asking about our Tide Free & Gentle PODS™ and the more yellow color. Some of the non-performance enhancing ingredients were removed. This did not affect their cleaning ability, but the yellow tone is a result of that change. Tide Free & Gentle PODS™ still delivers the same great performance while being just as gentle of skin as before.submitted byTide - 9 months agoBrand expert

Q: These seem to be causing lots of excessive sudsing in my HE washer. I only put in one pod. This has caused my washer to leak all over the floor! What's going on?!
A: Megan, we're very sorry this happened to you. None of our detergents will cause too many suds if you use them according to the instructions. If suds are overflowing from the machine, add 1 cup of vinegar then run a rinse cycle with cold water. If the machine is overloaded, suds can become trapped in fabric if there is not enough room for them to circulate freely. It may also help to run a monthly clean out of your machine following the manufacture's suggestions. If you have questions, give us a call at (800) 879-8433.submitted byTide - 2 years agoBrand expert
